Mera Peak (6476 m)

Mera Peak

Mera Peak at 6,476m is situated to the south of Mt. Everest. It was first climbed on May 20, 1953 by Col. Jimmy Roberts and Sen Tenzing.

It is considered as one of the best trekking peaks in Nepal. Firstly, because it requires only basic mountaineering skills to summit this height, secondly, the panorama from the summit is simply unmatched, and thirdly, the approach to this mountain is through the beautiful Hinku valley which is much less crowded than the Khumbu valley, providing a fantastic trek which will be as memorable as the climb itself.

From the summit of Mera Peak one can see five of the six highest mountains in the world: Mt. Everest (8848m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m) and Kanchenjunga (8586m).

Unlike many tour operators that take their clients straight over the 4610m Zatra La, which is a tough and dangerous way to start the trek due to the quick gain of altitude, we have a much gentle approach to the mountain. Our trek begins from Phaplu, passing by picturesque farming villages of Nunthala and Kharikhola towards Pangom, and then enters the Hinku valley crossing several passes along the way, getting ourselves well acclimatized before reaching the Base Camp.  We will set up our Base Camp at the Mera la (5200 m). An Advanced Base Camp will be set up at 5760 m from where we will attempt the summit.

What makes this expedition special

  • One of the easiest 6000 m + mountains. Technical skills or previous climbing experience not required but fitness is mandatory.
  • Probably the best panorama form the summit than any other trekking peaks in Nepal
  • Views of  five of the six highest mountains in the world: Mt. Everest (8848m), Cho Oyu (8201m), Lhotse (8516m), Makalu (8463m) and Kanchenjunga (8586m).
  • Beautiful trek through alpine forests and rhododendron valleys staying at remote villages
  • Considerably less crowded trails compared to Khumbu trail.

I went on a three weeks long trek with Christina & Saran who took us over Renjo La Pass, Gokyo and into the Everest ‘Highway’ to the EBC and Khala Pathar. An absolutely fantastic trek, organized by people who really love this country and it’s mountains. They know all the teahouse owners, no matter how “off the beaten track” the teahouses are located, as well as all the mountains in the region. When traveling with such people, you learn a lot about the culture, customs and the mountains. This all together made sure that Nepal will always have a special place in my heart. Everything was also very well organized with good food, accommodation and high security. I highly recommend Hi On Life!
